For the latest Seize the Birthday Challenge they have 'Anything Goes' as their theme. I have a lot of birthdays coming up over the next few months, so need as many cards as I can make!!
I received some new stamps and dies from Winnie and Walter the other day and got to play with them last night. I was just stamping out random colour combos and came across one I loved:
Using the stamps from Winnie and Walter 'In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya', I stamped with black Versafine Ink and Mama Elephant 'Bubblegum'. I always forget about black with flowers, makes them seem more modern and stylish some how.
After die-cutting the 'happy' twice from white CS and once from black CS, I glued the white ones together and the black one on the bottom so it was showing slightly. I then adhered it to the card front along with 'birthday' from Winnie and Walter 'The Big, the Bold and Happy', embossed in white on a strip of black CS. And for once, no sequins necessary!!
I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge as both the stamp set and 'happy' die were new this week.
Off to the pool we go before we all melt.......Hopefully I will get to play with these a bit more later on after I tire everyone out!!
